Mancini insists City won't stay unbeaten

5:36 pm on 20 November 2011

Manchester City football manager Roberto Mancini insists his Premier League leaders will not go through the entire season undefeated.

That's despite their 3-1 victory over previously-unbeaten Newcastle at Eastlands keeping City alone at the top of the league as the only remaining undefeated side in the top flight.

Their impressive run of 11 wins and one draw from the opening 12 games is a Premier League record and the commanding start has prompted many observers to debate whether City can match the great Arsenal 'Invincibles' side of 2003-04 that went through the whole 38-game league campaign without a single defeat.

However, the cautious Italian manager will not entertain such talk - he's sure that they'll drop at least one of the 26 games left.
